It was the biggest superhero to have a debut movie since Batman (89).
Speaking of Batman (89) is was a much bigger event than Batman Begins but that has nothing to do with quality.
Batman Begins was A - much better than TASM was, and B - followed up by TDK, which was a MASSIVE event. So, unless TASM2 does something similar, TASM won't benefit like BB did. further more, when it comes to Nolan's Batman films, TDK is the one most people remember. Sure, BB is there and well regarded, but TDK is the one people will talk about for 20 years.
